Twitter rolls out archive functionality; Users revisit first tweets from 2006

The Library of Congress has been archiving tweets for a while now, but starting today, Twitter is rolling out the ability for individual users to download a record of their own Twitter activity. Users will be able to relive their witty observations, election predictions, butt tweets and death threats, all the way back to the beginning of Twitter. The big question: will they want to?

Twitter has posted instructions here, but if the option isn’t available for you yet, be patient: word is that the service is being rolled out “slowly” and to English-language users first.

Drum roll, please…

We don’t remember that either. Here’s a taste of what you’ll see once you download your own tweet history.

So, how anxious are you to revisit your entire tweet history?
